So remember all that excitement for going on holiday? Your up early and get to the airport, checking your tickets and your luggage weight and then stand in a line waiting for people to search all those tightly packed bags, knowing you’ll have the same again when you get back. A new system by Qylur hopes to make that trip one step closer to peaceful.
The “Entry Experience Solution” looks like something out of Tron, with hexagonal pods placed in between two clear gateways. The system works on a basic principle, as you approach the machine you place your carry-on bags into one of the pods provided. The machine then uses everything from X-rays and chemical sensors to an artificial intelligence based system to search for everything and anything that may be considered a risk. If it does pick up something naughty though it locks the pod, making it impossible for the user to remove their bag until the security staff have responded to the risk.
The entry experience solution has already been installed at Disneyland Paris and the World Cup in Brazil, with the hope that the system can be tested across the US throughout 2016 before finally being considered for standard use in airports and major attractions.
Able to pass through 600 passengers within an hour and needing only four people ready to assist it, the machine could not only free up people to work in other areas of airports but could make your holiday run that little bit smoother.
